Viventium was instrumental in helping my company become ACA compliant this past year. After I listened to one of Viventium’s webinars on ACA compliance and reporting requirements, I realized we weren’t doing enough. Viventium’s extremely helpful and responsive service alleviated a huge stress from my shoulders.

Does The Affordable Care Act Affect You in 2020?

For the year 2020, employers with 50 or more full-time employees or equivalents must offer health coverage to full-time employees and file Forms 1094-C and 1095-C with the IRS. Filings are due to the IRS in the first quarter of 2021, and a copy of the 1095-C must be distributed to each employee by January 31, 2021.

Employers who fail to offer health coverage and file Forms 1094-C and 1095-C may be subject to IRS penalties.

State health care reporting is on the rise as an increasing number of states require an employer to report their ACA information on the state level.

Relax. We’re on top of it, and if you are on our ACA service, we’ve got you covered. We’ll keep you informed on the latest state health care reporting requirements and how you can maintain compliance.

Are You an Applicable Large Employer (ALE) in 2020?

To determine ALE status during the current year, employers use a lookback period during the prior year. If an employer has on average 50 or more full-time employees, including full-time equivalents, during the 2019 lookback period, the employer is an ALE for 2020.
